EDUC629 - Personalized and Individualized Online Learning

Course Details

Course Code: EDUC629 Course ID: 4361 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate

This advanced graduate course will examine the evidence-based practices for individual and collective student personalization in K-16+ classrooms and similar settings. Personalization is closely related to two additionally important approaches: individualization and differentiation. All three require a shift from a teacher-centered approach to an authentic student-centered approach. An effective student-centered focus requires tailoring of lessons to the abilities, interests, preferences, future life dreams, socio-emotional attributes, and other individual and collective needs of diverse students. The course examines motivation, assessment, and technological tools and how they pertain to personalization in online, face-to-face and hybrid contexts.
